soil sample and winter rye

I mailed out a soil sample from my vegetable garden today for pH, nutrient, heavy metal and organic matter testing. I'm really interested to see how far off the nutrients are. Too much phoshate and low pH, I'm guessing. I also have a photo here of my winter rye sprouts. They're coming up fast.

Where did you send your soil test to?

I sent my sample to Dept of Plant and Soil Sciences at the University of Mass. They were very fast. Just over a week for the results to come back, if I remember right.
